Refusing Updates for deleted programs
« on: December 15, 2019, 10:02:25 am »
I have a list of programs and software I have no interest in being on my desktop machine. I bjorked my system yesterday morning by doing a more thorough removal of things related to bluez, cups and samba via the Synaptic Package Manager. So I am working on a fresh installation at the moment. Mint Updates wants to reinstall bluez, my machine has no bluetooth capabilities. Do I simply add them to ignored packages? pulseaudio is among the unwanted, which also wants bluez.

PeppermintOS 8,9 & 10 Respins currently installed  on:
'16 Antec Aria rebuild
PMX Respin on '18 Asus VivoBook

Do not despair, grasshopper...
    with patience all will be revealed...
       Through pain, enlightenment will come.
